Good swing speed radar


Recommended Posts

What’s a good inexpensive swing speed radar distance measuring device? I have been wanting a cheap launch monitor type device to help dial in distances but I want clubhead speed measurements too, especially for my upcoming Honma Driver testing.

I use the PRGR Black for super speed training as it will read without a ball. It's a couple hundred and just give club and ball speed then based on those calculate carry and roll for the club you select. Is you launch and skin things close to whatever they use as number to come up with, 160 ball speed equals 270 and 290 total is fine, but your band slices excess skin and launch will not be accounted for, as I have thoroughly tested.

Of course rapsodo is 500 new and less second hand and so is the Mevo. More accurate and if you catch a deal only a couple hundred more which is probably worth it if it's in the budget.

I use the swing speed radar by Sports Sensors Inc.  It's the cheapest one out there - it only registers Swing Speed but it is easy to set up and pretty accurate.  You're looking at around $100.

 

I also have a Rapsodo but that is a launch monitor, it requires hitting shots to register SS.  PRGR will do both but it sounded like its pretty persnickity when I was reading the SuperSpeed reviews.  It's also $200.  

 

I hope that info helps.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Rev, does the Rapsodo work well indoors? I’ve been tempted by those but I’d like to be able to use it in the garage too.

I have never used it indoors - I live in Florida. My guess is that it wouldn’t be the best indoor device though. There is a MGS review of it in the blog and I’m sure that’s covered there.

 

Sorry that I can’t help on that one.

I’ve been looking at the PRGR as I want to start speed training. I’d like to have spin but you need to pay more for that. The data it provides is supposed to be very accurate.

I have a Garmin G80 and have found it to be very accurate. I even compared its numbers to a $16k simulator a friend has in his basement. The best part is, it’s a GPS as well.
